Elena Delle Donne throws out first pitch at Nationals Park, drops puck at Capitals game on consecutive nights
The 2019 WNBA champion Washington Mystics won their first title last week. Two-time league MVP and gold medalist Elena Delle Donne has been welcomed by two other DC teams who recently achieved or are currently fighting for their own first championship victories.
Tuesday, she threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Nationals’ NLCS-winning game against the St. Louis Cardinals. Wednesday, she took the ceremonial puck-drop before the Capitals’ 4-3 comeback win against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
